  2. Action for Boston Community Development
    The ABCD AmeriCorps Seniors Foster Grandparent Program matches low-income older adults, ages 55+, with children in schools, after school programs, Head Start centers, preschool, and day care centers to support children with special and exceptional needs. Foster grandparents serve for at least 15 hours per week in classrooms while earning a non taxable stipend and, for those eligible, meal & travel reimbursement. Foster grandparents provide extra care, attention and create meaningful relationships with children in order to improve their physical, mental, emotional and social development so they may grow to reach their maximum potential and become as independent as possible.

  5. Food Bank of Western Massachesetts
    The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts serves more than 108,000 individuals facing food insecurity, 33 percent of whom are children under the age of 18. Not eating enough healthy foods can have devastating effects on a child’s health, growth and development—both physical and mental. Intergenerational Community Meals is a healthy cooking workshop series targeted at families with members of all ages. The workshops cover topics related to nutrition, healthy eating habits, cooking at home, shopping on a budget, and physical activity. During each class, a meal is prepared, and everyone is involved in its preparation. At the end of each class, participating families get to take home a bag of groceries so they can replicate the recipe at home.

    The Greater Boston Intergenerational Chorus is a non-auditioned group for ages 10-110 (that upper number is just to show that there's no upper limit), we meet for 1 ½ hours on Tuesday evenings, We sing in many styles of music; a very eclectic mix. More than that, we have a great time together. It's a lovely community of people, and it's a bit different from a typical chorus; not quite as demanding or formal as some, yet we reach quite a high level of musicality and artistry.
